We thought it would be a good idea to create a handy guide on how to add resources to lessons on LingQ. We encourage you to help out beginners in all languages and start adding translations and videos of your own. You are free to create whatever type of video you like, whether it be a screencast, a whiteboard, your face, etc, as long as it’s helpful to the learners! Try to help explain difficult concepts to the learners so that they can grow more comfortable in the language right from the start.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to add videos and translations:
This function is available on any lessons that you yourself have uploaded. To edit all lessons in a specific language, you must be an editor in that language. If you would like to become an editor, please email us.
This is located at the bottom of the Edit Lesson page.
Please note that only one translation per language is currently allowable. If there are errors in the translation, please edit the translations or post on the forums.
The Translation will appear under the Resources tab. Please try to add spaces between each line so that the translations are easier to read.
Ensure that you upload your video to Youtube and set it to “Public”, otherwise it will not appear properly on the Lesson page.
Your uploaded video will be viewable within the Lesson page under the Resources tab.
There are many different screencasting programs out there, so choose whichever one suits your needs best. Some options include Jing and Snapz Pro X. However, as mentioned before you can create videos in whatever fashion you think will be helpful to learners of that language.
We look forward to seeing the Resources tab filled up with videos and translations 🙂
